Re: Clement OUT!!!!

That's because Stam sold or released them all. Really? Reeeaalllllllllyyyyy? Look at our academy squad, how most of those who left are doing now and those that are should be on the periphery of the squad or out on loan. I'm not convinced a single one we released would get into our team atm and we'r...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Seriously? By then the team will be on its knees and pretty much on its way to league 1. We are worse than last year and even Clements signings are now looking ropey. 5 million for Baldock is looking a worse deal than Aluko. When your at the next game look around you at the stadium. Empty seats, em...

Thats kinda what happens when you're a twat "Courts".


Why would being a twat make Liam Kelly of all people block someone? Never has the phrase "takes one to know one" seemed more apt.

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

From the day he was appointed I'm still wondering what his credentials were. Apart from carrying the cones and bibs for Ancelotti he's done nothing......and looks like continuing that record here. Zidane also used to carry the cones and bibs for Ancelotti. I think the “he’s done nothing” bit is the...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

I have a great idea, lets all go and watch the game in total silence. that would surely motivate the players out on the pitch. WTF is WRONG with you lot??? Somebody makes an effort to generate atmosphere inside the stadium and you simpletons are picking holes in it. They weren't making much of an e...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bolton Wanderers (h) sponsored by Notlob is Bolton backwards

Our problem is our board sign twatty players with no strategy on a way we want to play. Don't let the manager bring his own men in No, it's because ONCE AGAIN we signed a manager that plays oxf*rd, slow, football that isn't successful in this league. Not sure why anyone thought Clement would bring ...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Swift was at the centre of every single good thing we did Can’t understand how anyone could think he was woeful tbh McShane, Kelly, Yiadom, Blackett, Meyler, Moore on the Other hand... For me, you are just not going to win games when you concede pathetic goals like that. Glad Clement made a point o...

Re: BFTG - Forest away

Really don't know what I've said to warrant you coming after me like this Ian. The comment about putting words into the mouth's of people was an observation on your posting style, not a complaint. On the broad point we agree, the club aren't going to loan in a striker because they've already bought ...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

I actually happen to agree with you on why Moore didn't play, Ian. Just found it funny you seemed to think Clough, a man who once sent his keeper to go and train on a roundabout, was the sort of bloke that would spend all week doing meticulous tactical work. Most of that would have been left to Tayl...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

Probably.

"Players lose you games, not tactics. There's so much crap talked about tactics by people who barely know how to win at dominoes”

Clough's idea of pre match preparation was taking his players to the red light district the night before European semi finals.

Re: BFTG - Forest away

The problem with people like you and Ian is that you put words into other people's posts that aren't there. So when you see someone make the perfectly reasonable statement that these strikers are not consistent goalscorers you see, "these strikers aren't consistent goalscorers. Therefore they'r...

Re: BFTG - Forest away

It's not writing these players off to see that none of them are strikers a club at this level should have as first choice. They're all good second or third choice strikers that would supplement a squad but none of them are going to get the goals you need to get anywhere but mid table, if you're luc...

Re: Martin Ødegaard

According to 'WhoScored' he was the 15th best attacking player in the Eredevisie last season. For reference, Mason Mount was the 18th. On the other hand, Mount scored 9 and assisted 8 in 2162 minutes, Odegaard scored 2 and assisted 1. Yes but Heerenven have terrible forwards that couldn't finish th...

Nathan Dyer?

Pretty sure it will be Messi or Neymar

It's not though. It's watching them, the evidence of their records before joining the club and recognising their rather obvious limitations.
